  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, stir together the thousand island salad dressing, pineapple-apricot preserves, grated onion, dry onion soup mix, and cinnamon until well blended. Place chicken in a large, oiled baking dish. Arrange potato halves around the edges of the pan, fitting chicken and potatoes tightly together in a single layer. Brush sauce over chicken, coating completely. Cover with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and remove foil. Continue baking 15 minutes more, or until potatoes are fork-tender and chicken is no longer pink in center. Both should have a beautiful golden brown glaze.

thank you justjen33 this was marvelous, although i did NOT add apricot. I did use pineapple ( crushed) & everything else. This will be a regular @ my house.

I think this could be a misprint! I've made this many times, but NEVER with Thousand Island Dressing! Use the old fashioned orange French Dressing, and you will really like it!

Wow! What a change of pace for flavor! Weather too hot to use the oven, so made it in the crockpot. Chicken breasts turned out wonderfully moist and tender...made a very nice gravy while cooking...

This is good for a nice change. Next time I will take off the skin. I used chicken breasts with the bone in.

This recipe was frustrating and then wasnt worth it in the end. I read such great reviews, so I made it tonight. I used chicken breasts (boneless) and drumsticks instead of a whole chicken. The ...

Quick, easy, delicious! My kids loved it and mom and dad, too. I used boneless breasts cut into small pieces and my potatoes were also cut into smaller chunks. Everything cooked through and the ...

really enjoyed the flavors on the chicken and the potatoes, great combination!
